Hi there,
If you're keeping a pregnancy blog or a journal online and want to swap, please post your link here! Mine is: PREGGERS IN CHINA. I'd love to share with other Mommies-to-be. This is my first and I'm seven weeks along. I am a Canadian woman living in China. I can use all the advice and caring thoughts I can get. I look forward to your comments!

Thank you for sharing your blog I loved reading it and esp this part sounds soooo fimiliar

"When I first thought I might be pregnant, my partner suggested I should stop riding my bike. I balked at him. "What's wrong with cycling?" I asked. He said it could cause a miscarriage. I suppose if I were hit by a car (knock on wood that I won't be) then I can understand that fear, but lightweight exercise (even hardcore exercise if that's what you're used to, which I'm not!) is good for a pregnant woman! I am not suddenly going to become sedentary just because there's a backwards notion here that cycling will adversely affect me."

My MIL is Indonesian and told me a few things as well. It is my second pregnancy and I thought I made it clear last time that I do things my way. But still she gives me (good hearted though) advice:
- don't do anything active for 3 months
- take lots of rest first 3 months
- eat for 2
She is the sweetest woman, but ofcourse I will not do any of that. She told me that it could cause a miscarriage, but my OB told me the exact oposite So I just do what I feel like doing. I see it irritates her sometimes, but last pregnancy went by without any problems. (I was riding my bike 15 km a day until 30 weeks!!)

I was thinking of starting a tumblr for my pregnancy. I'm going to be selfish and say that EVERYONE should start a tumblr so I can follow everyone more easily.

My GP and also my gyno told me to do nothing but walk through the entire pregnancy. They told me no boot camp/Zumba, which I was doing 3x a week.

I have a Tumblr for my son and when we announce the pregnancy in a few weeks I will talk about my pregnancy on that.
